A lengthy article in DER SPIEGEL discusses the present situation - in German and in English.
The last sentence of the article is a quote of mine, which may easily be misunderstood, unfortunately. Instead of the rather short "Climate change isn't going to happen overnight. We still have enough time to react." I would have preferred the more extensive "We should reduce our emissions for reducing climate change. But we have also to deal with reducing our vulnerability. We are able, and have time to do so."
During the early part of the week, when the article was available only in the printed version, few reactions took place. Among them this e-mail: Hans,You are all going to be put in prison in Nuremberg. You are particularly guilty, so you punishment and reformation are going to be difficult for you. Love, Stan. (person unknown to me).
Two other relevant articles on spiegel on-line were a critique of Ottmar Edenhofer by Richard Tol, and a poll indicating a strong change in the German public perception of the climate issue.
